Winmau Christian Kist 22g
This is my first time to do a review so be easy on me lol...

Today I received my Winmau Christian Kist 22 gram darts from puredarts. They came packaged in the standard Winmau packaging with a plastic case with a point protector, 3 signature flights, and 3 medium nylon shafts. Puredarts also supplied their bag of flights and shafts as a little extra gift. In the picture I have I had already changed the flights and shafts to my normal setup.
I have only gotten to toss these darts for about an hour and I am overall pleased with how they fly. My only complaint is that with my normal setup and throw they land in the board with the flight angled down. This caused a few more deflections and bounce outs than normal. I think this could be because they are a little longer than the darts I am used to throwing. I will do some tinkering and it should solve that really quick.
As soon as I took the darts out of the packaging I fell in love with the shape and the grip. The shape of the darts fit my grip style perfectly and felt almost natural in my hand. The grip pattern on the dart is also very good. Although I do not know much about grip rating scales I would guess these would rank on the more aggressive side. These darts are slightly front loaded, with my normal setup the balance point falls right around the smooth part of the barrel.
Overall I think i am going to really enjoy these darts once I find the right setup. For me, I would rate the darts an 8/10 only because of the way the dart lands in the board right now. When I find the right setup I could see myself using these darts for a long time. I hope this review is useful to someone and if anyone has any questions feel free to ask and I will try to answer the best I can. I will try to provide more pictures soon.

Many thanks for the review Kcoc, have a +1. The shape looks more front heavy than I thought they were. Look a nice dart actually, may have to try a set too Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Good review and lovely looking darts. Tinker with slightly shorter stems and that should bring the tail back up. Let us know how they do after you find our right set up.

I have been digging through my stuff trying to find some shorter stems with no luck yet. I have a ton of medium length and a few of the short stems. I am going to check with some of the guys I throw with and see if they have any.

After hours of tinkering and frustration I have finally found the correct setup and the darts are flying great. I am using Target pro grip short stems with standard flights and they are landing in the board almost flat or with the tail slightly up. I finally hit a 180 with these darts (pics in the show us your 180 thread). I couldn't be happier with the darts. I am waiting on some of the fit flights and shafts to arrive and I'm excited to see how they work with these darts.

Nice looking darts. Can you give me the length and width of the barrel? I don't know why Pure doesn't put that in their adds?

I didn't measure them myself but the darts corner page has the length as 48.20 mm and the width as 7.10 mm.

Great review and a + from me as well.

I have been experimenting with front loaded darts for some time now as well, so I really appreciate the photo. Good job!!
